We had a great time! Stella was an incredible tour guide with a lot of interesting stories to tell about Buenos Aires and Tigre. And Charly was an excellent driver. Thanks a lot!

Wonderful tour led by a guide who spoke English and Spanish. We had fun learning about Tigre and the delta. We loved the boat ride portion the most. Lunch was delicious too.

It was a good experience. Unfortunately we had thunderstorms during most of the day, but our guide and driver still made the experience the best it could be. Thank you.

It went very well. The only confusing thing was finding location 10. But the rest went very well once located.

Really good. Further out of beauno aires than I thought. But we got a taxi for about £10
